    Pros

    Many of the team with whom you work are very competent and enthusiastic about the work which they do.

    Cons

    Contractors are considered mere commodities. While all potential Contractors know that the reason they are hired is to fulfill an immediate need, there is a difference between coming into a busy department, and coming into a department where the work has been back-logged over several months. In addition to that backlog, add the assignments for which you were originally hired. Some (not all) management can sometimes be verbally abusive because you are, again, a mere commodity. You are put in a position, by that verbal abuse, as well as your own professional awareness and eagerness to do a good job, that you must put in unpaid time in order to get the job done. Overtime is rarely available, yet you feel obligated to stay beyond your scheduled shift, and are pressured to stay, by that abusive behavior, and the overwhelming amount of work which needs to be done.
